What Does It Mean to be a Christian?

1 Thessalonians

Paul and his companions planted church and was there for about 3 weeks.  He then sent Timothy back some time later to see how the young church was going.

Exodus 4
Luke 8:12-15

Paul wanted to prove the genuiness of his faith to the church and he loved the people.

In our church, many people have come through with great ideas, but they have not stayed because they have not loved the church in this place.  They have not been genuine in their love for the people.

In the church, many people are well off and have a lot of pleasures and they don't grow up!

Exodus chapter 4.  Do we see what is in our hand?  We have the Word of God in our hand.  With this we xan change the world around us.

How much power we have.  Moses was 80, a shepherd, he had murdered.    Yet how much did God use him?  He brought out the people of Israel from slavery.

Will you give the Lord your life?

What does it mean to be a Christian?

We need to pray for our nation.  Persecution is coming to 'the blessed' in the western world.  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ across the world who are being persecuted.

As Moses went out and use the staff, the enemy came against him.  God calls his people to do his work. 

Having your name in the book of life. You can be rich or poor but if your name is not in book of life - same reward - separated from God.  Total loss.
